EMRA Fellowship Guide

Chapter 29 Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Fellowship

Undersea and hyperbaric medicine (UHM) is a unique subspecialty of emergency medicine that involves the therapeutic use of oxygen under pressure to treat disease. Hyperbaric oxygen is used to treat dive emergencies, arterial gas embolisms, radiation injuries, complex wounds, carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, deadly infections, ocular emergencies, and much more. The specialty of UHM includes treatment with hyperbaric oxygen but also the study of extreme pressure environments, immersion effects, and marine life injuries.

The patient population is diverse, including recreational and commercial divers, patients requiring daily wound care, and critically ill patients. Fellowship training prepares physicians to care for patients with emergent and elective indications, participate in research, and become leaders in the field.
